Jazz accordionist Tony Compton in lunchtime concert at Southend Civic Centre Council Chamber
After the success of his well-attended July Jazz workshop/masterclass with Karen Street, Tony Compton will play a lunchtime recital this September playing a variety of music from Jazz. Astor Piazzolla, gypsy, Frosini, film music and much more and will be joined by Simon Ramet for some of it on his Roland V-Accordion or (“PANDAMONIC” as Jack Emblow calls it!). Actually Ramet handles this instrument very well it must be said.
This concert is part of a series of lunchtime concerts at the civic centre which are free to attend but have a retiring collection for the musicians. A list of the other concerts in the series can be found here: https://www.southend.gov.uk/art-music/lunchtime-recitals-civic-centre/1
There is a lovely article on the Essex Freemasons website about the success of Tony Compton’s master class event which ZZ Music covered last July. You can read all about it here: https://www.essexfreemasons.org.uk/news/item/219-saxon-hall-accordion-masterclass
